In the residence halls and apartments, the wireless network has two SSIDs or "names". USIRes is the unencrypted SSID and is best used for gaming, streaming applications like NetFlix and casual Internet browsing. USIResKey is the encrypted SSID, offering more protection on-line. The key is available from your RA or the IT Help Desk at 812-465-1080. 

When on campus, the wireless network SSID is either WiFiatUSI, which is unencrypted, or USIacademicWIFI, which is encrypted for student use, USIsecuredWIFI, which is encrypted for faculty/ staff use. The key is available from the IT Help Desk at 812-465-1080.
